A CAMPAIGN FOR REAL MILK
It has been a long-term goal of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) to have legal access to raw milk in all 50 states. That day is getting closer; there are currently 43 states that allow legal access to raw milk through either sales for human consumption, raw pet milk sales, or distribution through herdshare agreements. When we started A Campaign for Real Milk in 1999, that number was 27. The states without any legal access are Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey and Rhode Island.
There are a number of states where distribution is legal but limited. The aim is to legalize some form of raw milk distribution in the states where it is currently illegal and to expand access to states where it is legal but availability is restricted.
WAPF is committed to putting more resources into the drive for legalization in the remaining seven states as its first objective. Louisiana, which came close to passing a raw milk bill two years ago, and New Jersey are the priorities for this year. WAPF is conducting a campaign to pay for lobbyists in those states as well as to pay for other expenses associated with changing the law.
THANK YOU! WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL! Additional donations will allow us to focus beyond this immediate need in Louisiana and New Jersey. DONATE NOW
In addition to working for legal access in the remaining seven states over the next few years, we will continue to work in other states to increase access especially where the laws are overly restrictive. We need your help! Your donations will go a long way towards making this a reality and increasing availability of this nutrient-dense food for your children and grandchildren.
Raw milk can be a gateway for small-farm prosperity with consumers purchasing meat, poultry, eggs, produce and other products once they set foot on the farm to obtain milk. Invest in the future of small, sustainable farms and in the future of your family’s health by contributing to the fundraising drive of A Campaign for Real Milk to legalize raw milk access in all states.
As always, your generosity will make a difference. Let’s finish the work that WAPF members and many others set out years ago to accomplish.
Thank you for your continued support!
